Arrived to Vientiane by bus at the Southern bus station (khíw lot lák kâo) and got a shared tuk tuk to Th Fa Ngum - one of the main roads Vientiane - for a bartered price of 10,000kip (just over a dollar). The guesthouse is a 3 minute walk from there, so in a good location. Although we never ate...

We stayed here for 1 night and were disappointed. The room was 80,000 kip for air conditioning in a double room. It had a one shared bathroom but with way too many rooms. It also had no wifi. I would recommend looking elsewhere.

My wife and I have been travelling around S.E. Asia for the past month, each time relying on a combination of Lonely Planet and Trip Advisor recommendations. So far, we hadn't been disappointed... until last night. We based our decision to stay at Chantha purely because it was LP's top pick for Vientiane on a budget, so we thought it...

I totally agree with whooshbang! The place was nowhere near as bad as people are making it out to be, especially when your only paying 85,000 for a private double. I chatted with other travellers around Vientiane and the next step down from here is 50,000 a night and is the biggest bed bug infested hell hole you can imagine...

Firstly putting a hotel down because there are Mosquitos is a little unfair.... Your in SE Asia, wear protection. first i'd like to comment on how friendly the staff were during my 6 night stay here. There was always someone there to help me which is more than I can say for a lot of places. The rooms - okay...

How this place is "our pick" in the lonely planet I do not know! We left the room after about ten minutes it was that bad and I am not a picky person. The whole room was disgusting and dirty, the sheets where yellow with weird stains on them And it wasn't even cheap from one traveller to another avoid...

This was by far the worst place we stayed while traveling through Asia. When we arrived it was early and badly raining so we got t this place. We had read very good reviews about it so when the guy asked us did we want to see our room before we paid we said no that we were happy enough...

I can only agree with everyone elses reviews. The room looked ok on first quick glance, and we stupidly took it as it was the last one and a bus had pulled up outside with a few people who were about to come inside for a room also. We luckily didn't have any bed bugs, but the sheets were absolutely...

The LP guide says the rooms are very clean but looks like they have not been cleaned for years. Sheets were grubby and not white. Did not get bed bugs. At 90,000 kip not good vale but other GHs in the area were all full.

We stayed at the guesthouse on December 7, 2011 based on Lonely Planet's recommendation in South East Asia on a shoestring. It was an ok hostel until we woke up in the morning and saw that the bed was covered with more than a dozen bed bugs. My wife was bitten over twenty times despite that fact that she slept...
